Game says not enough HDD space but there is 64 GB of space.
I have a brand new PS3 and i have only one game's saved utility on it. I got a second game, Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction, and tried to start it up but it said: "Your HDD has insufficient space, you need 419MB in order to initialize the set up of this game. Please create some free space and try again." But, I have at least 64 GB of memory left so why does this message appear? Because of this, I cannot continue on to the main menu of the game. Therefore, not allowing me to play it.

There is a similar problem with other games, such as Ratchet and Clank. The fix for these have been to install and/or unistall something of about the same size (A demo from PSN works pretty well). Hopefully this works for the issue you have with Prototype.
This is a common problem (bug) with this game. Basically you have to delete something, anything, off your harddrive. If you have nothing on then download a demo or something then delete it. This should fool yr ps3 into releasing the space you need to play r&c.
have you tryed to format the HDD or make sure it is properly in if u know someone with a ps3 try swaping HDD's to see if it is the HDD if its brad new and under 4 weeks or 2 depending where u live you can take it back to the place u got it from to get a new one
If this is a PS2 game that you are playing on the PS3 you need to set up a internal seperate memory card for that game and that will fix your problem how to set up a internal memory card goto the icon that says game scroll up till you see memory card utility click it then click new internal memory card.
this is a known big in the game , i listed the report below
We have identified a data loading issue with PS3 and Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction, which may affect users who boot the game up for the first time.
During the pre-game set-up procedure, game data is automatically saved to the PS3 HDD. It has been found that, on occasion, this data fails to copy to the HDD, with an on-scree message claiming that there is insufficient space to do so - despite the fact that there is in fact enough free space on the drive.
ACTION: For every 4GB of HDD space, there is a 540MB range that will cause the game to display a message indicating that there is insufficient space to create game data. This message will therefore occur when the following amount of free space is on the HDD:
- 4010-4550MB; - 8010-8550MB; - 12010-12550MB; - at every subsequent 4GB interval (i.e 16010-16550MB, etc)
If the PS3 HDD is within any of these ranges when booting without game data created, this message will appear. After game data is created, this will never appear, so if a user doesnt encounter it at first, they never will. Any users who do receive this message will need to either delete data from or save data to the HDD, so that the amount of free space no longer lies within the range detailed above
Thats means you do not have enough available space on your hard drive to install the graphics program. You need to go into your games saves, music, or vids and delete the ones that you feel you don't need anymore. I hope this helps. Thanks!
